The Internet is all black and blue over an Adidas jacket people are arguing is either blue and white or black and brown.

And it comes almost one year after "The Dress" tore society apart.

The photo emerged in a Tumblr postthis week and has already pit friends against friends who see four different colour combinations.

Some say it's white and blue. Others say it's black and brown. Green and brown has also been argued. And yet some have chimed in to say it's green and gold.

What say you?

Last year's pseudo-controversy surrounding "The dress" was settled when its owner, Caitlin McNeill, proclaimed it was blue and black.

A Wired article explained that people were seeing it differently because of how they perceive light and colour.

The Independent offers a similar explanation for the jacket. How you see it depends entirely on how your eyes see colours when they're illuminated by sunlight, the U.K. publication said.

The way the jacket is lit in the Tumblr post makes the viewer discount certain colours, which influences their final verdict, it said.

But really, as The Independent noted, it's blue and white.
